The Baja Fresh at 237 D St., at Third Street, closed late last week. The Mexican fast-food restaurant was next to the downtown Post Office which is also scheduled for closure. The eatery just opened this fall, around late October.
I received this email from Diana Garcia of the Baja Fresh corporate office today:
“The Baja Fresh you are inquiring about is a member of our franchise community. In order to focus on growth during a time of economic downturn, the franchisee has chosen to close this restaurant. There are no immediate plans to open another restaurant in this area; however Baja Fresh is continuously growing in its number of locations, so check back in the future to see if plans have changed. ”
